College Football Scores Over $25,000 from Anthony Travel for Hurricane Relief
After Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria made landfall in 2017 and forever changed the lives of so many people, Anthony Travel committed to support the hurricane victims and relief efforts with Touchdowns and Travel for Hurricane Relief, where $1 was donated for every point scored by their 66 client football teams this past season. Leading the way with these efforts and finishing once again at the #1 spot in the final rankings for their 2017 football season are the UCF Knights, racking up an impressive 627 points.
“Not only did our top-ranked scoring offense thrill Knights fans and college football fans everywhere, but it also led to some tangible relief for people affected by Hurricanes Irma, Harvey and Maria,” UCF Vice President and Director of Athletics Danny White said. “Our area was affected by Hurricane Irma and we have friends and fans who were impacted by all three of these devastating storms. We’re proud to have partnered with Anthony Travel on this charitable effort to truly help those in need due to damage or loss from these storms.”
“With so many relief organizations doing great work, we decided it would be most impactful to designate a different charity each week. By tying our contribution to points scored, we felt optimistic these efforts would amount to a significant donation and our clients would know their touchdowns helped those in need,” said John Anthony, President and CEO of Anthony Travel. “We appreciated the outpouring of charity suggestions and are proud that our clients’ success on the football field resulted in over $25,000 in donations to 14 Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico hurricane relief organizations. It is a great example of Anthony Travel’s caring community of associates, clients, and partners. Together, we made a difference.”
